Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - CHICAGOANS OF THE YEAR | 2019 -

“Dare Me” (9 p.m., 12 a.m., USA; 11 p.m., E!)): Adapted from a best­selling novel by Me­gan Ab­bott, who serves as writer and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer here, this new drama ex­plores teen angst and power dy­nam­ics in the cut­throat world of high-school cheer­lead­ing. Set in a small Mid­west­ern town, the story fol­lows the volatile re­la­tion­ship be­tween best friends Addy and Beth (Her­izen Guardi­ola and Marlo Kelly, re­spec­tively), whose bond is tested by newly ar­rived coach Co­lette French (Willa Fitzgerald), who has been tasked with whip­ping their squad into cham­pi­onship shape.

“Killer Sib­lings” (6 p.m., 8 p.m., OXY): In a new episode, the mur­der of a cor­rec­tional of­fi­cer at first seems to be a clear-cut act of vengeance. Sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion, how­ever, ex­poses a clan­des­tine love tri­an­gle. Af­ter he learns his wife is hav­ing an af­fair, a cuck­olded hus­band hatches a plan to kill her lover, en­list­ing the help of his broth­ers to carry out the scheme.

“Flirty Danc­ing” (7 p.m., FOX): Shut up and dance! That ap­pears to be the mantra for this new dat­ing se­ries hosted by ac­tress and dancer Jenna De­wan (“The Res­i­dent”), in which a blind date starts out with dance lessons for some per­fect strangers. Each per­son is taught half of a dance rou­tine, then taken to a ro­man­tic lo­ca­tion where, with­out say­ing a word, they per­form the dance twice, once with each of two dif­fer­ent part­ners. A full date fol­lows with whichever part­ner pro­vides the bet­ter con­nec­tion.

“Ray Dono­van” (7 p.m., 12:30 a.m., Show­time): In a new episode called “The Trans­fer Agent,” Mickey (Jon Voight) fi­nally learns the truth be­hind why the heist was so badly botched. Else­where, Ray and Molly (Liev Schreiber, Kerry Con­don) are ready to do what­ever it takes to track down Sandy (Sandy Martin) and Mickey. Ed­die Marsan, Pooch Hall and Dash Mi­hok also star.

“Duff’s New Year’s Eve Cake-Off” (8 p.m., 11 p.m., Food): Host Duff Gold­man rings in the New Year a cou­ple of days early as four pro­fes­sional bak­ers com­pete in a va­ri­ety of un­con­ven­tional bak­ing and de­sign chal­lenges in which fla­vor is only — par­don the ex­pres­sion — the ic­ing on the cake. The bak­ers are chal­lenged to cap­ture and con­vey a theme of change across the years in their cakes, but the cakes them­selves also must trans­form from old to new. Judges Dan Lan­gan and Way­lynn Lu­cas put their heads to­gether to de­cide who earns the $10,000 grand prize.
